on Thursdays, we’re teddy bear doctors

The Hollywood Reporter on a lawsuit alleging infringement by the 2012 film Ted of a foul-mouthed teddy bear character that lives with humans.  This post brought to you by a reminder that Supernatural did it in 2008:

Sam and Dean: On Thursdays, we're teddy bear doctors
Yes, this is an actual line from the show.

THR says the characters allegedly share “a penchant for drinking, smoking, prostitutes,” “similar physical attributes and similar vulgar traits, and that both live in a similar environment, have human friends and maintain an active social media presence.”  Idea/expression and scenes a faire, anyone?
